Red Wolf paints on sandwiched honeycomb aluminum panels. He first etch into the surface of the aluminum to reflect light. Scoring a highly reflective groove pattern into the aluminum substrate, varying the direction, depth, and angle of these patterns, It can produce a three dimensional illusion approaching some of the fundamental characteristics of rainbow diffraction gradient holography. The painting style in this endeavor incorporates combinations of thin films, nano particles, and optical coatings to embed structural color optical elements within the painted layers of my artwork.
I see myself as a painter drawing on the rich history and technique of painters who have come before me. Today’s material science enables me to arrange nano structures and effect optics in creating an artwork in ways unlike anything that has been possible before.
From his quiet spot amongst the shadows, Robert Murray captures the light…
With an insatiable appetite for learning, Robert has exploring the world through his artwork since he was a child. His career has followed a path through multiple artistic expressions including architectural and technical illustration, award-winning graphic design and illustration, but it’s in his paintings that we catch a glimpse of the curious boy from south London, Ontario.
As a boy, Robert loved to study the drawings in Popular Mechanics and spend time watching his Grandfather at work, building wagons for Silverwood’s Dairy. The puzzle and intricacy of how things worked appealed to him and this curiosity set the stage for a life spent observing and learning from every experience.
He also loved exploring the back laneways in town; places of mystery off the beaten path, a world unto themselves where a boy could imagine endless adventures and explore the hidden treasures of the wild urban pockets.
The paintings of Adamo Adamo are a celebration of the artist’s admiration for the unpredictable and inexhaustible record of life. He abandons the conventional renderings of geometric forms through his textured surfaces and rough contours.
Adamo draws influence from artists of all periods and from the world around him. Travel is an important source of inspiration, especially trips to Italy, his ancestral homeland. During these extended stays, Adamo is able to explore monumental art and architecture as well as the small details of the rural landscape.
